About Joshua


Bio

I'm Joshua. I graduated with a Doctorate degree in Biostatistics in 2013, with a Masters degree in Biostatistics in 2009, and with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science (I graduated summa cum laude) in 2007. I received the Outstanding Senior in Mathematics Award in 2007, the Outstanding Graduate Student Award in 2013, and received a Ph. D. with Distinction for my dissertation in 2013.

I'm Joshua. I graduated with a Doctorate degree in Biostatistics in 2013, with a Masters degree in Biostatistics in 2009, and with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science (I graduated summa cum laude) in 2007. I received the Outstanding Senior in Mathematics Award in 2007, the Outstanding Graduate Student Award in 2013, and received a Ph. D. with Distinction for my dissertation in 2013.

I tutored in the Math Lab during the Fall 2006, Spring 2007, and Summer 2007 semesters while I was attending Augusta State University (now Augusta University). While I was working in the Math Lab I provided tutoring services to students on an as needed basis for College Algebra, Precalculus, Elementary Statistics, and Calculus courses. My tutoring approach for the students that came to the Math Lab involved working out textbook problems with them on the whiteboard, answering any questions they asked me, and walking them through any graded exams they showed me to help them understand where they went wrong on their exam problems and what they needed to do differently to improve their competence with any course material they were struggling with.

I was a teaching assistant for Statistical Theory I, Statistical Theory II, Introduction To Epidemiology, and for Design and Analysis of Observational Studies while I was attending graduate school at Medical College of Georgia (now Augusta University). While I was a teaching assistant for these courses I answered any questions they had during class lectures and I tutored students that were enrolled in these courses one on one as needed during my office hours. My tutoring approach for these students was to answer any questions they asked of me, to work out problems with them to help improve their competence with the course material, and to provide them guidance on how to solve the homework problems correctly while still placing the responsibility of solving them on the students.

I taught at Georgia Regents University (now Augusta University) in the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters. The courses I taught were Calculus and Analytical Geometry I, Elementary Statistics, and Precalculus. My teaching approach for these students during my class lectures was to work out textbook problems on the whiteboard, answer any questions they had, present summaries of the chapter contents as PowerPoint presentations, give in-class demonstrations on how to use their calculators to carry out some of the calculations required to solve homework problems and exam problems. I also posted the solutions for the homework assignments and exams and discussed any trends I noticed in my students' performance on the homework assignments and exams. My tutoring approach for these students during my office hours was to answer any questions they had and to provide them guidance on how to solve the homework problems correctly while still placing the responsibility of solving them on the students.

I want to help students become proficient with any subjects they are struggling to learn as much as possible so I am open to any resources or suggestions that students can provide that would be beneficial. I am easy to reach and will strive to respond to students' emails or text messages in a timely manner. If you ever need to cancel or reschedule a lesson please let me know ahead of time as soon as possible so I can adapt my schedule accordingly in a timely manner. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!

Saved me in stats/probability

I have the most rudimentary math background, never got past algebra and even that was 15 years ago. I am now in a college level statistics class which is prerequisite for nursing, and Josh has patiently helped me review 7 weeks of materials in a few sessions. He is very patient and very skilled at breaking things down. He even knew how to help me plug in all the calculations on Google spreadsheets/Excel. I am grateful I found him.
